Spirit Led, Spirit Reliant
Our prison ministry relies fully on the Holy Spirit to lead us and the inmates we serve.
JUST THE RIGHT BOOK AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME
We reach out to prisons by sending Bibles and Christian literature to prison chaplains. We depend on God and the generosity of other believers to donate Bibles and Christian books. Once we receive the books, we sort, stamp, and ship the books to correctional facilities across all 50 states.
Done For the Least of These, Done for Jesus
All of the work that we do, we do for the purpose of bringing God glory.
Abiding in His Word
Christ told those who believe in Him, that when they abide in His Word, then they are truly His disciples, living in freedom and truth. Each book we send is stamped with an invitation to join our Bible study. The CLI inmate Bible studies were written to make disciples, showing them how to follow Christ and teach His truth to others.
Grace is Greater
Prison ministry is a testament of God’s goodness. No one’s sin is too great to be forgiven through the power of Christ’s saving grace.
